Johannesburg:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday reaffirmed India’s commitment to multilateralism, international trade and rules-based world order as he  participated in the Brics Summit here.

Mr Modi, who arrived here on Wednesday on the last leg of his Africa tour, presented the country statement of India at the BRICS leaders’ closed session.

 

“Celebrating a decade towards peace, harmony and shared development and prosperity! PM @narendramodi joins fellow #BRICS leaders at the group photo at Sandton International Convention Centre at the formal beginning of the Summit,” Raveesh Kumar, the spokesperson for the ministry of external affairs, tweeted. The PM reaffirmed India’s commitment to multilateralism, international trade and rules-based world order, he said. The grouping’s leaders are expected to deliberate on global hot-spot issues.

Meanwhile, reports in a section of the South African media have claimed that a recent petition to that country’s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) by two groups there---the Muslim Lawyers Association and the South African Kashmiri Action Group---demanding legal action in South Africa against Prime Minister Narendra Modi regarding the Kashmir situation had initially threatened to “derail” the summit.
